Could be the crank angle sensor. If that's the problem the ECU under the passenger seat (sedans) or passenger carpet (coupes) will read out the code for it.

if it's the crank angle sensor that's bad, your car will run rough (rpm will fluctuate and it may hesitate) and will stall sometimes.

can be $1000 to fix at the shop, but you can find a DIY online and do it for $70. Took me 2 hours, and I know nothing about cars. And you don't have to remove the timing belt either. good luck!

Alarm system

Most alarm systems have a CMOS battery inside them... like a PC has- which uses a button cell. You need to replace the battery inside the alarm unit... not the one in the fip key. Your immobilizer is stopping your car and must be turned off to allow it to move. Try disconnecting the negative terminal for ten (10) minutes and see if that fixes it first!

When my lincoln town car 1993 dies when i stop do i have a serious problem?

No read the fix below.

Engine stalling issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Can't get the key out of the ignition

Did you try turning the stearing wheel while trying to turn the key? Sometimes there is too much turning pressure remaining on the wheel when the car is stopped to allow the key to be removed.

Start the car, turn the wheel 1/2 turn either way will work but towards strait is preferred. With your foot firmly on the brake, shift the car from park to drive and back to park and than try stopping the car and removing the key.

Wife's 2007 dodge grand caravan has re-start problems. She makes an errand stop, leaves daughter inside car listening to radio. Returns, turns key and hears "click-click-click...". Sometimes it...

Replace battery. The CCA or cold cranking amps can be too low while voltage remains normal. Most the time when this happens the battery only operates properly when cold.
